    Worth the drive
    It was about a 2 hour drive each way from the cruise ship in Montego Bay, but it was worth it. It's a beautiful area. The botanical gardens are very well cone and the museum is very small but does a good job of explaining the history of Jamaica. And Dalton was a terrific tour guide! There is a small food area if you need something to eat or drink while you're there. However, it is advertised as handicap accessible. I use a motorized scooter and would say that it is accessible but not really wheelchair friendly. There are several steep areas that would be difficult to manage in a wheelchair that was either self-propelled or being pushed by a companion. There are also quite a few rough areas on the path.

    Cool morning adventure
    The tour guides are accommodating. Get there early for best experience. The parking area is relatively small so on a full day there may be issues. The park is well kept and the food prices were affordable. There was an option to go to the bottom of the falls; and that was a whole lot of stairs ,or to go midway, where there is a little 4 ft swimming area and the top of the falls. There is also a tour with birds, plants and a little museum.

    Konoko Falls is better than Dunns River!
    Visited Konoko Falls with my family of 6 (2 parents, 4 kids 10-15) from the UK in August 2023. Had the best time. Dunns River is too touristy and overpopulated whereas we found Konoko Falls quiet and relaxing. We first met our guide, Noldie who has been there 38 years and knew everything. He was so kind, knowledgeable and showed us everything including the birds, plants and trees in the rainforest. Then we went to the mini zoo and picked up parrots and iguanas! My children were thrilled! The we did the climb up Konoko Falls which did not look easy but with the help of the fantastic lifeguards, Kenroy and his colleague we did it! Kenroy was simply thebest and most helpful guide ever and even took photos and videos whilst we were all climbing up the waterfall. It took an hour and my 51 year old knees were aching but I did it! It is a really satisfying achievement and I highly recommend Konoko Falls as it is a secret to be discovered and a memorable day out!

    Highly Recommend
    Had the best time at Konoko falls. When we arrived and looked at the mountain ahead of us I thought it would be impossible but with the help of our very patient lifeguards we all did it! There was a 70 year old lady in our group and the guides were so great with her. Would highly recommend. Would highly recommend wearing grippy beach shoes.

    Great venue
    Never ever rely on a Jamaican web site as they are nearly always nonesence. Always phone ahead. The website says open monday to sunday. It is only open wednesday to sunday. Other sites in the area state opwn when they have neen closed for years. Worth the visit. A great venue with great views.

    Learned new thing’s
    My friend and I visited Konoko Park just for a day when we were in Ocho Rios because we were on a cruise I wish we could’ve spent more time. The Park tour it was amazing April our guide was so kind and friendly and she had so much fun with us. We learned a lot and I felt it was a really good experience so I highly recommend Konoko park and give a shout out to April and try to get her as your guide. Also, keep in mind this is their livelihood TIP it really helps them out. They work their butts off.

    Great Time at Konoko Falls!
    We had an excellent time at Konoko Falls! Our tour guides Nadisha and Kenrod was AMAZING! Nadisha gave us a wonderful tour of the island and introduced us to common fruits and vegetation on the island. Kenrod hyped us up before we hit the falls and helped us along the way! If you are going to the falls, I recommend those two guides! This activity was really fun for the family!

    Tui organised trip
    On a Tui holiday in Runaway bay so decided to do the organised tour along with blue hole. Its was just after a storm had passed and weather was somewhat unpredictable. The group of 11 of us, only 8 of us wanted to climb the falls so we did it straight away just incase a storm came. You walk down the wooden stairs and then with guidance from the guide you walk up through the waterfall. It’s fun and refreshing. The lifeguard guide is helpful, it’s not too difficult . Beautiful location and refreshing. No pressure to do something you don’t want to, generally expected to tip at the end. Had a lovely guide take us around the gardens too, then a lunch of jerk chicken/ sausage and rice. Was a lovely experience.

    Hidden Gem! You will Love this Place!
    If you love nature, and would like to still climb the Water Falls with less people, this is the place for you. Konoko Falls has gardens where you will have a guided tour to walk you through the gardens explaining all the different plants, fruits and trees of Jamaica. It also has a area where you can take nice pictures overlooking the port where the ships dark. It also has a petting zoo where you can pet animals take pictures with Parrots , iguanas and snakes. And before you go, you must climb the falls to the top. This is a hidden gym that most people don’t know about.

    Excellent Day Trip
    Excellent day trip for our family. Kenroy was our guide and he was 10/10. Professional, fun with great camera skills and excellent knowlege of local plants on our tour of the gardens. He somehow made an amazing video of our clinb on our phone! Having been to Dunns River many times, this was a more low key, relaxed and private experience. We arrived at 3pm and our group of 4 were the only ones climbing at the time. It was lovely and calm. The 'museum' is very basic and written from an English perspective.

What a great day. We stopped at a duty free shop
in ochos Rios. Get water shoes $13 you'll need them. At Konoko falls. You go through the gardens with a guide explaining all the plants.
Then, you climb the waterfalls. Super experience. Once finished, you get lunch. Then home. Thoroughly recommend this such a great experience.

We had so much fun! We explored the water falls, had the best tour with WINSTON (ASK FOR HIM) that was super informative on the animals and plants on campus. The food and drinks were amazing! I’m definitely coming back!

We enjoyed our time at the falls very much. They are a little less spectacular than dunns river falls, but still incredible and much fun. If you can be there in the morning hours you can be lucky like us and have the falls for you alone. Climbing is easy but fun. Definitely recommended.

Beautiful and fun experience. Lots of climbing 🧗‍♀️ Guides kept us as safe as they could. They helped everyone along, and gave assistance where needed. Be sure to wear good water shoes or sandals with straps, NOT flip flops. The tour was good along with our guide, she was very informative.

The premier experience here is the falls - specifically climbing the falls - a far better (and cheaper) experience than Dunns River Falls, which is clogged with people coming off cruise ships. Not so here: You will more often than not have the falls to yourself, but also an expert guide (recommended) to help you up the challenging sections of the falls. In our case, that guide was Kenroy, who we heartily recommend you ask for when you visit and decide to climb the falls - he was superb! He’ll even help you overcome your claustrophobia if you choose to submerge into Bob Marley’s cave. A wonderful refuge from the noise and hustle-bustle of Ocho Rios and a tranquil oasis you should not miss.

Learning about the trees and plants that are native to Jamaica was an interesting aspect to this park. Though we didn’t climb the falls here it was a beautiful view. There is a bar and eatery onsite. Different animals to look at. There is a petting animal for some animals but our guide didn’t take us through that area.

This is a great place to go if you're in Ocho Rios or Dunns Falls, Jamaica. There is a beautiful garden tour you can take and then you can hike up the waterfall! It's amazing. A little strenuous but doable. We had a fantastic guide who helped us up the falls - Kenroy. He was sweet and funny and strong! (having to help lift us up the steep rocks). A truly wonderful man. Great way to spend a few hours.

Went with another couple and took a taxi from the resort. We were the only ones there and had a great time with our tour guide. Beautiful grounds, animals were active and making noises and great views for pictures.
